This booklet is about HIV and women. Whether you are newly diagnosed with HIV, or have been living with HIV for some time, the information here is to help with answering your questions on living well with HIV, as well as with talking to your doctor and others involved in your health care. We recommend you discuss the information in this booklet with your doctor or other members of your healthcare team.
The booklet includes information on some of the day-to-day issues involved in living with HIV. It also has information about HIV treatment, sexual health, contraception and having a baby.
An HIV diagnosis is a life-changing event. It is important to know that a woman with HIV can live a healthy life; have a baby without passing on HIV; work and study; and have fulfilling emotional and sexual relationships.
In the UK, people with HIV are protected by law against discrimination because of their HIV status. And there’s lots of support available through your healthcare team and community-based organisations.
